Continuing my idea of a quantum computer being infected by a biologivcal virus. Loved playing with the possibilities. This was a great lesson.

This is my assignment for Lesson 1, I spent more time (around 1.5 - 2 hours) for my favorite frames.

Also I've learned a lot from my mistakes by watching the apprentice journey! Thank you so much Jama :)

I work as a Graphic Designer, photo retoucher and illustrator I am also a musician. Motion design is where my passions meets.

The first time I was really aware of motion design, is when I saw the intro of the movie seven. The mix with graphics and movie close ups, the Grungy effects, the rhythm of the image and the music, the texture of the video and the texture of the sound and how and you can clearly get the tone of the film before any of the action is shot.

Animation comparison
The one on the left use more the rules of physics. The stretching (or motion blur) of the sphere when it’s faster, it slows down with friction. On the line at the 2nd stage, the ball stays a little bit longer because of the balance and at the end the ball starts slow-fast following the energy of the hammer.

I did a simple animation of a flying front kick, I tought it would be fun to work on gesture.

What is Learn Squared?
Learn Squared is a new form of art education founded, curated and powered by industry-leading artists. 
 
We aim to demonstrate the idea that everybody starts somewhere.
When do classes start?

All courses are now in session, with new Guidance (tutorial) content releasing every Wednesday for 8 weeks. All previously completed courses are available on-demand with all lesson content available, so you can sign up at any time and learn at your own pace.

What do you mean by ‘a new form of art education?’
Each of our courses has not one, but two high-level professionals. You get to follow along as one industry-leading artist teaches another from a completely different field. You receive the same tutorials, the same information, and the same guidance.
Why would I want to watch somebody follow tutorials?
We’re not just showing you what we’ve learned - we’re showing you how we learn.
 
By taking an otherwise advanced artist and placing them in an unfamiliar field, they are now starting at square one.
What do the courses consist of?
Depending on your access level: Highly focused personal mentorship, in-depth video training, The Journey from each course’s Apprentice, access to view the week’s mentorship session, project files, and raw screen captures to download.
How long are the courses?
The duration of our courses vary greatly depending on the instructor and the content being covered, but students can generally expect between one and three hours of training per lesson.
Can I download the tutorials?
At this time you cannot download Learn Squared video tutorials. 
 
However, certain members will have access to a plethora of downloadable content including project files, raw screen captures, and more. 
Can I sign up any time?
Yes! Well, for Basic and Learn Squared plans, at least. 
 
Our Professional plan offers a highly personalized weekly mentorship with limited seats available. Due to the focused nature of this mentorship, sign-ups are only open for a limited time depending on our instructors' availability.
How do the mentorships work?
Learn Squared offers a highly focused personal mentorship with limited seats within each course. 
 
Students will meet with their instructors in a weekly live chat after completing the week’s lesson. The instructor will then review each student’s work and offer personalized critique via constructive advice, paintovers, and more.
